    Hot Dipped Galvanized Steel:
    Know the Difference

    Galvanization of steel refers to the process the steel undergoes to make it more resistant against corrosion and rust. This process usually involves adding a protective layer of zinc to steel in order to prevent corrosion and rust over prolonged exposure to the elements. And while there are different ways to galvanize steel, hot-dipped galvanization is often thought to be the preferred method.

    Hot-dipped galvanized steel is steel that has been submerged in vats of molten zinc, which coats the steel entirely, making it inherently resistant against corrosion. That’s because the heat of the molten zinc changes the molecular makeup of the steel. This process ensures that the steel frames of our ShelterTech buildings offer more reliable resistance against corrosion and rust.

    Durable Steel Frames, Built to Last

    ShelterTech steel frames are also thicker than standard steel pipe frames for most fabric buildings, making them stronger and more durable. Depending on the size specifications of your building, the width of the steel pipe changes to ensure a safe building that is wind and snow rated, and built strong.

    One of the advantages of choosing ShelterTech is that you can choose a custom size for your building. Custom lengths are available in 4 ft. increments for barn and peak buildings and 5 ft. increments for round buildings. Buildings are configurable in lengths up to 100 ft. long in all shapes. The pipe diameters of the frames are related to the building width (see above chart).
